A collection of 50 blues guitar licks and techniques for you to master on guitar.
The Guitar Lab DVD series employs a hands-on approach that allows students to play their way through the curriculum, rather than struggle through tedious theory and exercises. Features PIP (picture-in-picture) video, standard notation, guitar tab, power tab files, practice rhythm tracks, and bonus material.
Top blues educator Jeff McErlain reached out to the Delta and beyond to deliver the building blocks that every consummate bluesman must know to unleash blues solos full of soulful lines and vibrato-soaked bends.
Jeff goes way beyond the familiar minor pentatonic licks by uncovering the scalar approaches, turnarounds, comping ideas, and signature lines of blues masters Clapton, Page, Green, SRV, Hendrix, and Billy Gibbons as well as pioneers such as B.B., T Bone, Albert King, and John Lee Hooker. You'll learn sliding 6ths, chromatics, minor and major applications, diminished lines, overtones, killer double-stops, octaves, rakes, swing comping, swamp licks, and much more.
Add these 50 licks to your blues bag and you'll have the insight and chops to deliver powerful, evocative solos within any blues style.
Guitar Lab's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students play their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation, which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation, at any tempo, without a change in pitch.
